Where Does The Time Go

 My Goodness, time flies when you are having fun so they say.  Sorry that it has been so long since I last posted.  I haven't really been in the mood to do it.

Today here is a beautiful Spring day so I thought that I would take advantage of the sun shining and show you what I have been up to.  For some reason the photos came out the wrong way, but never matter.

Right, the first photo is of a Scarlet Letter Sampler called Susan Singleton.  Terri, Deb and I are doing a SAL that is going to take us 2 years to complete.  We have to post every 3 months.  The first post is to show our fabric and threads.  I am going to work Susan on 40ct Antique White Linen and I am using DMC threads as called for.  Looking forward to starting this sampler.

This should all be interesting as I usually only work on one sampler at a time as I find it sometimes confusing.  But for some reason I have 5 samplers including Susan Rambo going at the moment.  Susan will make it 6.  My other sampler is a very special Australian Sampler that I have been looking for, for a long long time, but I will talk about that one, another time.

Sorry about the linen not being ironed.  I just thought that I would take the photos on a whim and haven't had a chance to iron them.  I usually do that when I am finished.

The one about is my Rebecca Cullin.  I am doing Rebecca in the original version and I have to be in the mood to do specialty stitches lol.

This my Hestera Harmer Sampler that I bought a few years ago.  It is a Queenstown Sampler Design.  Hestera is very special to me as I am related to her.  Haven't figured out exactly how, but I know that I am related.  I think that Hestera is my Anne's GGG Niece or something like that.   I have been do a lot of family research and I am working on the connection.  Must tell you that that Hestera and my Ann are related to some very important people, wayyyyyyyy back lol.

The other sampler that I have been working on is one of my favorite samplers that I have wanted to do for a long time.  It is Marquoir de Justine.  Justine is such a pretty girl.

As you can see I have a lot on my plate lol.  Don't know how I ended up with so many all at once, but I will get through it all.

Well, that is all about it I guess.  Don't know much else.  To much knowledge can be dangerous sometimes so they say lol.  Thank you for stopping by.
